Evan-Moor Practice Books

Dear Parents,

Our school is participating in a fundraiser that also promotes summer learning!
For every Daily Summer Activities book purchased, our school will earn $4 in cash. Research has shown that short sessions of daily practice in the summer months help to maintain, and even increase, what has been learned during the school year. By practicing basic skills during the summer, your child will be ready to make a smooth transition into the next grade.
How the Fundraiser Works:

1. Please visit this website to preview and order Daily Summer Activities books, available for grades PreK-8:
2. At checkout, enter our school’s coupon code: DSA6026.
3. Books will be shipped directly to you within 2 weeks.

Important! Be sure to enter the above coupon code for FREE SHIPPING and to ensure that our school receives fundraising credit.

Tell grandparents, other relatives, and friends to shop for Daily Summer Activities books using our school coupon code!

Daily Summer Activities books provide:
  • Teacher-developed practice activities covering core subjects
  • Engaging practice of basic skills
  • 10 weekly record logs to track work and interesting events
  • Summer reading list and parent suggestions
  • Answer key

The books are 144 full-color pages and cost $12.99 each.
